Webcast: Standby Systems for Hospital Campuses and Data Centers

Hospitals and data centers have incredibly difficult requirements for electrical systems. Not only are the systems complex and have to run 24/7, the implications for failure can be loss of life or millions of dollars in productivity or lost revenue. Register for this on-demand webcast.

Hospitals and data centers have incredibly difficult requirements for electrical systems. Not only are the systems complex and have to run 24/7, the implications for failure can be loss of life or millions of dollars in productivity or lost revenue.

In this Webcast, design engineers will present two unique case studies of standby-system design, one on a hospital campus renovation following a devastating flood, and the other on a new spec data center that had to be robust, but also highly flexible to accommodate future, undefined occupants. 

Case Study 1: Flood-hardening an electrical system

Speaker: Tom Divine, PE Senior Engineer / Project Manager,  Smith Seckman Reid, Inc. (SSR), Houston 

Flooding from a tropical storm damaged or destroyed the electrical infrastructure of a large hospital campus. After the initial restoration, both the emergency and utility electrical systems were hardened against future flooding. Measures included protection in place, reconstruction at higher elevations, and system reconfiguration to isolate vulnerable floors. The heart of the electrical system was replaced, while maintaining continuity of patient care.


Case Study 2: Keeping it Flexible - Speculative Data Center Standby Power Design

Speakers: Scott Kesler, and Haroon Sheikh, Senior Electrical Engineer, Cannon Design, Chicago 

 
Designing an emergency power and distribution system for a spec data center requires a bit of imagination and solid engineering fundamentals--but more than anything, a flexible design process and solution.  In this session we will review our design for 100,000 sq ft of data center space intended to be subdivided into various tenant suites.  The standby power and emergency distribution system not only needed to be robust and have ample capacity for high density computing space, but also needed to be able to adapt and be flexible for however the occupant ultimately configured their space.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
